it may be just me but it seems like more sites give you better hands in freerolls than cash tourneys does anybody else feel this way

freeroll vs cash

Postby Haroven » Sun Jan 22, 2006 8:28 pm

i agree. i get better hands in freerolls. but then again i play alot tighter in cash tourneys and end up throwing away mediocre hands that i would win with in a freeroll

I think the difference is the number of hands you see.  Freerolls go prety fast and you see lots of hands, yours and everybody that stays to the showdown.

Ring games with real money on the line.  there are fewer showdowns in the first place.  You often don't even see your hand completed.

Very well said, cards are the same you just don't see when real money on the line...or even closer to the end of a freeroll, like the final table

I think Freerolls are very questionable in the beginning of a , lets say 1000 people tournament. because of the many miracle rivers and double outers. i believe it only happenes when theres alot of entries in a tournament.

I also think you see worse hands in the freerolls,they are not necessarily worse hands but I have seen quite a few hands where people go all in with the crappiest hands,say 2 5 off suit and someone has a high pocket pair and get beat by a straight.Always see a crappy hand win in a freeroll.

I agree I usually get much higher hands in the freerolls. This could also be because i play tighter in the real money tables so I dont hit the flushes and str8's eith the lower cards. Most people will chase more in the freerolls then in the real money tables to.

Some really good replies, well thought out.  I was initially going to say that it was bull.  After reading all the posts, I realized that I would have been wrong.  I guess perception and value in a poker game will make a big difference.  As mentioned, in freerolls one will see many more hands, obviously because one has nothing to lose.   Start losing your own dough, and one will tighten up, as they say.
